The hardest part of your weight loss journey is the final stretch when it comes time to tone and sculpt your body into your ideal shape. Fortunately, advancements in technology have given patients the option to easily sculpt their bodies into the exact shape they want. At Premiere Aesthetics in Fort Meyers, FL, the key to realizing your body goals is Emsculpt.
Emsculpt: A Revolutionary Body Contouring Treatment
For many people, sculpting muscle is more difficult than shedding pounds, which means it can frustrating when you’re feeling stuck. When it comes to building muscle and sculpting your body into an ideal shape, even the most intense workouts might not give you the results you want. Emsculpt is a revolutionary treatment that gives you the helping hand you need by targeting two key issues at once.
With Emsculpt, it’s not just about fat reduction. This treatment is focused on toning the muscles on your body for a slimmer, healthier, stronger appearance. Optimal results form this treatment include a tighter body shape overall, particularly in areas where toning muscles takes a lot of time and effort, such as the abdomen.
For this treatment, reducing body fat is a fringe benefit of contouring your body into the exact shape you want. This is because this treatment primarily targets muscles rather than existing fat, so while you may be able to eliminate those final few layers of fat deposits, the main goal of this treatment is to tone and build muscle.
How Does Treatment Work?
This is a non-invasive treatment that uses the power of advanced technology to help tone your body and reduce body fat. The treatment works by applying a HIFEM device to desired areas of the body and allowing the device to stimulate the contraction of muscles in a short amount of time. After several treatments, you will notice that your body will appear slimmer and more toned.
Why High-Intensity, Focused Electromagnetic Technology Works
High-intensity focused electromagnetic technology, also known as HIFEM, is a form of energy-based treatment that stimulates the rapid contraction of muscles on the body. The rapid contractions caused by HIFEM can achieve a greater amount of muscle toning movements than traditional exercise, meaning this treatment is overall more efficient at toning muscle. HIFEM works because it is quick, safe, and effective at stimulating over 20,000 muscle contractions in a short amount of time.
What Areas of the Body Does This Treat?
Generally speaking, this treatment can be used on most areas of the body where muscle needs to be toned. However, the most effective area is the abdomen, where belly fat is stubborn, and contracting the core muscles is more difficult. This treatment is unique to other body contouring treatments focused on muscle contractions because it can also be used on the buttocks and thighs.
What Can You Expect From Treatment?
At our clinic, we strive to give every patient the personalized care they deserve, and that starts with your first consultation with our team. During your consultation, we will discuss your appearance-related concerns and talk about reasonable expectations from this body contouring treatment. We may also talk about your general medical history and your lifestyle habits.
From start to finish, each of your treatment appointments will take 30 minutes. During your treatment, you will lay prone in a private room while the HIFEM device is applied to the desired treatment locations. Most patients feel muscle contractions similar to those felt during an intense workout.
There is no recovery time associated with this treatment. Patients are free to return to their normal daily activities, including work, errands, and regular exercise.
Results from this treatment vary from patient to patient, but the majority of patients see final results about 3 months after the first treatment appointment. Your initial results will appear within 2 to 4 weeks after your first appointments and will gradually become more obvious as time passes.
How Often Do You Need Treatment?
Broadly speaking, the best way to get optimal results from this treatment means having a minimum of 4 treatments spaced about 3 days apart. This initial round of treatment kickstarts your body sculpting journey. Many patients opt to have regular appointments after the initial ones to enhance results, usually once every 3 to 4 months.
How Long Do Results Last?
On average the results from this treatment can last as long as 6 months after the first round of treatment. Results will continue to last for as long as you maintain the effort to keep muscles toned, either independently or with follow-up treatments throughout the year.
What Can You Do to Help This Treatment?
There are several things you can do to ensure the results of this treatment last for as long as possible. For example, keeping a regular exercise routine will make sure your muscles are continually stimulated to maintain results from this treatment. Monitoring your weight and preventing weight gain is also key. If you are a woman, pregnancy will undo the results of this treatment.
Is This Treatment Safe?
Yes. Although this treatment is the first of its kind, it has been cleared by the FDA after several clinical trials that have deemed the treatment safe and effective for the majority of patients.
Who Are Good Candidates?
Candidates for this treatment include any patient who would like to tone and sculpt muscles, as well as any patient who is seeking to eliminate final stubborn layers of fat. Both women and men are qualified for this treatment.
The final step in actualizing your body goals is making sure your muscles are toned and sleek. When it’s time to finish your weight loss journey, turn to revolutionary Emsculpt treatments to burn more than fat.
